The Grand Tour: Art Blog by Bob

It's the week for reviews!  The Art Blog by Bob reviewed A Journey into Michelangelo's Rome this week writing:

"The Renaissance "arose within a maelstrom of enormously potent political, economic, and social change," writes Angela K. Nickerson in A Journey into Michelangelo's Rome, Roaring Forties Press' newest addition to their ArtPlace Series. "In Italy, the winds of change transformed a collection of warring principalities and city-states into a continent's
mercantile and cultural powerhouse." Within that whirlwind, Michelangelo and his revolutionary talent helped shape Renaissance Rome and continues to haunt the Rome of today. Nickerson, an international tour guide who is married to a Roman, conveys a sense of the power Michelangelo's spirit still holds over locals and tourists today."
